Habitat Philadelphia's response to the COVID-19 pandemic to keep families in healthy, affordable homes.
In mid-March of 2020, Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia closed it’s doors to practice necessary social distancing to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our city. Despite being temporarily closed, we continued to serve our city in addressing the need for affordable, healthy housing. Our office staff is still working remotely, but our team has resumed building while taking the necessary social distancing measures at Oxford Green, our current construction project in North Central Philadelphia. Our ReStore at 2318 Washington Avenue re-opened on June 9.
During this time, we also launched our Home Together Fund and each week, while we remained #HomeTogether, Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia’s CEO Corinne O’Connell provided a live update on how we continued our mission. During this pandemic, our mission is more important than ever, and it is impossible to shelter in place without a decent, healthy, and affordable place to live. We are in this together — we are all home together, and now, home is more important than ever.
While our Home Together Fund is now closed, you can still make a gift to support Habitat Philadephia:Make a Gift COVID-19 Resources
